2002 wolverine 350 timing help
When I adjust my timing I make sure the valves are shut (there will be play in the rocker arms) and like the man said,the cam will be loose. Then I set the crank on "T",which means TDC ("F" means fire). Then I line the cam mark up with the mark on the head. Usually the mark will be slightly to the left of the mark on the head. Then when I install the chain tensioner the mark on the cam will always be to the right of the mark on the head. Ive done this many times on Warrior engines (which are the same as the older Wolverine) and it works fine everytime. Sounds like you have other problems to me.
I ride, because football, basketball, and baseball only use one ball
